Sinfonietta Cracovia To Perform Music By Philip

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) On Thursday, June 1, Sinfonietta Cracovia will perform music by Philip Glass and Wojciech Kilar at (Le) Poisson Rouge (158 Bleecker St, New York, NY). Tickets are $30 advance, $35 at the door.

The performance is part of the Sinfonietta Cracovia’s international tour celebrating the 90th anniversary of the birth of the late Polish composer Wojciech Kilar. The U.S. itinerary also includes concerts at Hammond Castle in Gloucester, MA (May 29) and in New Caanan, CT (June 3). The young Polish pianist and composer Aleksander Dębicz is featured; the orchestra is led by its principal conductor, Katarzyna Tomala-Jedynak.

Founded in 1990, Sinfonietta Cracovia is one of the leading chamber orchestras in Poland. These performances of Glass|Kilar mark the ensemble’s first time in the U.S. since 2011.

The program highlights the parallels in the careers and styles of both composers in performances of their film and concert music. Glass and Kilar both studied with Nadia Boulanger, both scored Dracula films, and both exist in the intersection of popular culture and fine arts.

Wojciech Kilar (1932-2013) was a prolific composer of music for cinema, including Jane Campion’s “The Portrait of a Lady,” Francis Ford Coppola’s 1992 classic “Bram Stoker’s Dracula,” for which he received the ASCAP Film and Television Music Award, and Roman Polanski’s “The Pianist,” which earned him a BAFTA nomination. Glass was nominated for three Academy Awards for his film scores for “Notes on a Scandal,” “The Hours,” and “Kundun.”

The concert also features Aleksander Dębicz’s “Sideways,” an original work for piano and chamber orchestra with Dębicz at the piano.
